So in January of this year I picked up a Springfield XD9 with four high cap mags because I was getting my CCW. Well, I got the CCW, but have yet to really carry as I didn't have a holster. I finally go the bug to carry and get a holster but then I started to consider the challenge of concealing the XD. Well last week I bought a M&P9c for my concealed carry gun but now I have a dilemma. Do I sell the XD? Do I keep it as a night stand gun or just use my M&P? Do I need a night stand gun? Should I sell it and get a shotgun for home defense? What do you guys think?

This is how collections start... first one, then two... what's your next purchase? :image035:

Keep the XD. You never know when one or the other may need repair.

You're WAY over thinking this. If you can afford to keep the XD and you enjoy shooting it, keep it. If you can't afford it or don't like it, sell it. As to a nightstand gun, why not have one. Two is better than one and three is better than two. Get a shot gun in addition to what you have for pistols.

If money is a factor then sell what you have to get the next one you want.

For home defense both a pistol and a shotgun have their place. Nether is a "Total home defense" solution.

If money was an issue, I'd sell it, and purchase a shotgun or maybe even the full size M&P to compliment my carry.

Trust me, keep it. Murphys law may strike and you may need a spare.

Ya, the money isn't really the issue, it is just if i really need it. But you guys are making it easier to say keep it. I just have to make my mind up becasue I have a gun that might come and look at it tonight. So I need to know before then. I guess I can always sell it later.

I'd keep it if you can? I have an XD45, it's my night stand gun. I have several smaller carry guns, but it's nice to have a full size HD gun.

Keep it. I sold one of my guns once and have regretted it ever since. Unless I have to I will never sell any of my collection again.
